Meet Our Trip Leaders: Shane!

Since the age of 19, my passion for travel and thirst for adventure have taken me to 26 countries in all corners of the globe, thriving on experiencing new cultures, meeting new people, and seeking new adventures at every turn.  My love of hiking, mountain biking, skiing and kayaking have taken me to some amazing places in the world; from the Swiss Alps (where I got lost and almost trampled on by a giant bell-wearing cow!), an Egyptian tomb (where I was chased by locals for what can only be described as a slight misunderstanding!), to a successful summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro at 19,341 feet (where apparently running to the summit moments after collapsing is not recommended!).

In 2001 I began leading trips for youth in adventure-based multi-week expeditions hiking, rafting, kayaking, and surfing across the southwestern United States, planting the seed that would later become my chosen career.  Every day I’m grateful for being able to experience new adventures in this exciting and inspiring world we live in, while constantly meeting amazing people, with my group who journey with me, and the locals at each destination we visit. I look forward to sharing my next adventure with you!

See you on the road!
